Revelations.. The Movie

I wonder why I bothered to turn on NBC tonight to watch their movie version of Revelations.  Mostly likely so I could have something to write about tonight in my journal lol oh and because we canceled HBO and Skinamax so there was not much else on.

I watch these movies here and there that like to twist their own interpretation of the Biblical events that are to happen in the End times.  I put them on but I can hardly watch them for more than 15 min before I go.. ohhh brother.. ppl buy this junk.. that is not what the Bible said.. and ohh well that is just stupid now.. I wonder if these film makers and actors are aware of the possible curse they could be bringing down on themselves:

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.

I read that warning and understand God is very serious about the book of Revelations and specifically tells ppl not to mess with it, don't add anything to it or take away.  How could some one make a movie about the book of revelations not be aware of that?  It is almost enough to make you not want to study it or understand it.  But that would be a mistake also because :

Revelation 1:3 Blessed [is] he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand.

It says you will be Blessed to read it and keep it. You will be blessed because when the big stuff starts to go down, you will not be in fear because you already know what is going to happen and can rest on God's promises for you. Knowing the Word of God is so important, especially now when so much false teaching is going on and as the days get worse if you don't know what the Bible does say you could be fooled to believe a lie.  If you know what the Bible really says and not just take one person's word or movie or book that it says this or that it will not be as easy to be confused or fooled.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

I am not going to go into a big long explanation of what I believe about The End Times but I have studied it and our church has studied it extensively.  I do believe I am living in the generation that will see Jesus Christ's return.  I know for many, especially those who are older than me and who have heard the End Time message over and over may be rolling their eyes about now, saying they have being saying that for the last 2000 yrs why is this time any different then the past.  I say.. HELLO, WAKE UP and look around you!!!  I HIGHLY recommend you read Matthew chapter 24 and 25 and see what Jesus said.

Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh:

Matthew 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors.

I don't believe Jesus will come any second now but that some things have to happen first before he will.  But we are to be watching and aware so that when he does come we will not be asleep and over taken like a thief in the night.  Because I am not of the night but of the day:

1 Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

Well I could go on and on about this topic.  It is one of my favorites but didn't I say I wasn't going to get into a big long post tonight about it?? LOL

If you really want to know what I think IM or e-mail me and we can search the scriptures together. : )  AND I recommend you read Hunter's journal where he highlights current news events and how it relates to the coming of Jesus Christ.

He that has a ear let him hear.. and He that has eyes let him see.   : )


  1. I did the same thing tonight. lol.  I figured that the show would twist Bible verses, but I still had the urge to watch it hoping that it might be exciting enough to get people interested in Bible prophecy.  Unfortunately, it was worse than I imagined it could be (promoting the Big Bang and communicating with the DEAD-ugh!), and on top of that, it was boring!  I couldn't stand it any more after 28 minutes.

    Sadly, I think the show promotes witchcraft more than Bible prophecy.  But then again, it shouldn't surprise me...

  2. I watched it too last night. I found it interesting. I have to see how they put a spin on it and if they bring it all around. I was watching the way they presented the insurance they father did not have and how the hosptial said they needed to let her die to save another child and give her organs away. They very much showed how its a money racket and profit racket in the so called suppose to be life saving industry. In light of Terri S. I thought it very interesting this girl was in a vegatative state.

  3. I watched it too. My mom thought I'd like it and that it could lead to some interesting debates between us. (She's spiritual but not Christian.) Personally, it scares me. To death. I've never read Revelations and when Dillon (my youth leader) or Pastor Tom start talking about how the end of the world is near and how the prophecies have been fulfilled, I'm sorry to say it but, I tune out. I can't listen to it because it scares me. Someday soon, I'll read it and I'll be okay about it. I hope. Until then, I pray that the Lord can forgive me for not reading Revelations and for not reading that booklet Lindz has that tells how prophecies have been fulfilled.

  4. i didn't watch it.....i always see a preview of something i want to watch and then i forget.......but, i have read that part of scripture saying you shouldn't add or take away from any words of the Bible.  but we have to remember this is hollywood and their versions of things are always twisted just a little when they are trying to make a buck or spice up their side of the's all about audience and a movie rating.

  5. Hi!  I just received your reply to my journal entry about this series today.  It's my first journal comment!  I'm so excited!  Gee, maybe people really do read these things.  Yours is great!  I looked through your journal and your my kinda gal!  There should be more like you, just keep saying it like it is!  God bless ya, see you in heaven!

    In Yeshua,
